There is a lot of great stuff in the left and right columns here. On the left is a blogroll that links to many, many great bloggers. It is always fun to explore the blogs on this list. I suggest trying to make your way down by looking at five new blogs each day.

On the right there are, of course, some ads. Today there are two from the United Nations that I think everyone here would want to click on to learn more. The United Nations is under attack from the right and needs your support! (I don’t make money if you click on them but I do make some money every time someone clicks one of the items in the Google ads.)

Down the right side a ways are current headlines from BuzzFlash, Media Matters, Smirking Chimp and “Privatize This” from the DCCC. It’s always a good idea to check these.

And, finally, clicking on the little picture of an envelope at the end of each post lets you send the post to a friend.
